Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities

The updated district Wellness Policy focuses on healthy habits at school, and promotes all aspects of student health – starting with food, nutrition, physical activity and social emotional well-being.

Research shows that healthy habits lead to success in the classroom. The policy establishes healthy food and nutrition guidelines for fundraisers, activities and celebrations that take place within the school day.

The guidelines for snacks and celebrations encourage parents to:

  • Honor your child’s birthday by sending non-food treats such as stickers or pencils.
  • Ask your child’s teacher what non-food or healthy rewards/incentives they are using in the classroom.
  • Become involved in planning seasonal parties that include games, crafts and healthy foods and beverages.
  • Participate in brainstorming ideas for healthy, non-food focused school fundraisers.
  • Refer to the Smart Snacks in School guide when packing snacks for your child.
